Jaxx Blockchain Wallet Adds ShapeShift Integration

Jaxx Wallet Partners With ShapeShift to Enable In-Wallet Conversion Between Bitcoin, Ether, and DAO Tokens

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - June 10, 2016) - Decentral is excited to announce the new integration of the ShapeShift API with its Jaxx fleet of blockchain wallets. By working with ShapeShift -- the industry leader in blockchain asset conversions -- Jaxx's seamless cross-platform experience now offers the option to convert between bitcoin, ether, and dao tokens. It will also support any tokens that Jaxx and Shapeshift integrate in future.

The ShapeShift API allows users to convert between bitcoin, ether and dao directly within Jaxx, making it more convenient than ever. Erik Voorhees, ShapeShift Founder and CEO, comments: "We built ShapeShift's API for this very reason -- to enable other services in this ecosystem to leverage it for the benefit of their users. Converting blockchain assets should be as easy as clicking a button, and Jaxx's integration of ShapeShift demonstrates this principle."

With interoperable versions currently available on nine major platforms, Jaxx offers unprecedented accessibility for today's blockchain enthusiast. The unified Jaxx fleet of wallets enables cross-platform pairing, encompassing mobile, desktop and browser extensions.

"The Jaxx-ShapeShift integration is one of many partnerships we anticipate with companies around the world," says Anthony Di Iorio, President and Founder of Decentral, the makers of Jaxx, "We believe our single code base and the ability to deploy in minutes across all platforms and devices gives us a huge advantage towards becoming the industry's default blockchain wallet."

The implementation of ShapeShift into Jaxx is part of Decentral's long-term vision for Jaxx becoming the go-to wallet for the whole community, including users of alternative blockchains. Decentral will be making additional announcements soon regarding its next set of integrations.
